Thanks to Russel Tarr (@russelltarr on Twitter) for sharing a link to over 100 videos from Teachers TV that give practical starting points for lessons using an Interactive Whiteboard. The videos themselves don’t show Interactive Whiteboard in action. Rather they are stimuli for children to begin discussing a subject
For example, I looked at the video “Seeing in the Dark”, which looks into the science of light. The video itself shows a man bringing his dog out for a walk at night. Under the video are a number of links to web sites that can be used to support the concept being taught, for example, in this case there was links to the BBC’s school section on Key Stage 2 Science and the topic of light.
All videos seem to be short, around the three minute mark and are instantly engaging. For those with poor Internet speeds, one can download the videos too. The full set of videos are available on: http://www.teachers.tv/primarystarts
